ADJUNCT MEETINGS

A subgroup of the committee hosted two meetings with stem cell scientists outside of California to obtain their perspectives on the work funded by CIRM and the Institute’s scientific impact. Discussions centered on the scientists’ view of CIRM’s accomplishments and goals as articulated in the 2012 Strategic Plan. The first meeting was held May 30, 2012, in Toronto, Canada, and the second in Boston, Massachusetts, on June 26, 2012. These sites were selected as the committee considered them to be major hubs of activity in stem cell research. Scientists participating in these meeting are listed below.
